The design was inspired by a traditional Chinese story named "To Borrow Arrows with Thatched Boats", when two kingdoms were in a war. It was interpreted in the designer's own way, inspiring the designer to create a pair of shoes with two different design but yet consistent and connected. The designer wanted to express the story with the shoes representing a couple in a fight, delivering the story that even in hard times they are inseparable. The design is two physically functional and wearable footwear that were made with non traditional material but with traditional techniques.

Amazonia are shoes inspired in the jungle. They born after a real experience of the designer in the Ecuadorian rain forest. The aesthetics and construction of the shoes are based on the overlaying system of the multiple trees and plants in the jungle, giving as a result a rich universe of contrast, shapes, shadows and lights when a person is walking under the trees and inside the jungle during a sunny day. In a fusion, the three layers were cut by laser and the entire shoe was made by hand.
Skinners are innovative footwear designed for travel and sports enthusiasts. The design challenge was how to fuse a sock and a shoe with all their properties into one uniform yet functional product.
